Mack Trucks introduces Mack mDRIVE rolling start and auto neutral
January 20, 2017 By Staff report
January 20, 2017 – At the 2017 World of Concrete, Mack Trucks introduced Mack mDRIVE rolling start and auto neutral, two new features designed to improve the jobsite performance and safety of trucks equipped with Mack’s mDRIVE and mDRIVE HD automated manual transmissions.
Both features are standard on all Mack mDRIVE and mDRIVE HD transmissions. Mack mDRIVE rolling start allows drivers to shift the transmission into drive without pressing the truck’s service brakes. This eliminates the possibility of creating a bump in the paving surface, which is a critical benefit for paving applications. Several construction applications, including concrete mixers, rely on remote throttle controls. By automatically shifting the mDRIVE into neutral when the parking brake is set, Mack mDRIVE auto neutral helps improve jobsite safety by reducing the possibility of the truck moving due to throttle application.
